Jam Bands Mayo is a musical project based in Co. Mayo, Ireland, under the auspices of Music Generation Mayo.
It brings young musicians aged 12-18 together to jam, make music, explore ideas and inspire each other. Facilitated by experienced musicians we make music together in a collaborative and creative way to bring out and showcase the unique voice of each of our young musicians individually and as a group.
We aim to ignite and fuel a passion for playing, writing, performing and pursuing music. To pass on useful skills that helps in a musical journey. To give real life experience in creating and performing. To invite the young musicians to have ownership and leadership in their own music making. To have fun!
Open to any instrument player from any background, including singers. We run regular sessions in Ballinrobe, Westport, Castlebar, Claremorris and Ballina, including longer holiday camps on occassion.A full list of all sessions from March – June 2017 are available here
